I will also discuss how a successful integration of these concepts in my nursing career has given me the foundation for advanced practice nursing. At the age of eighteen, the tension at home was unbearable with my step mother and I moved out seeking independence and a career in nursing. The two tools I had were motivation and intelligence.

Behaviors which reflect altruism are showing an understanding of cultures, beliefs, and perspective of others, advocating for patients, taking risks on behalf of patients, and mentoring other professionals. Autonomy according to Taylor is the right to self-determination (2008). The nurse must respect the patient’s rights. The nurse should listen and act according to the patient’s wishes and needs not bullying him into cooperating with his treatment plan. The nurse shows such value by planning care in partnership with patients, honoring the right of patients to make decisions about healthcare, and providing information so that patients can make informed choices.
Moreover, Beauchamp (as cited by Wida ̈ng, 2002) acknowledged that respect and integrity are both significant characteristics in ethical reasoning and the provision of nursing care. In this essay, the importance of the theme, which is the respect and maintenance of dignity of patients, to the patient care, the patient’s health outcome, and to the nurse will be discussed.

For the first two years of college, I excelled in taking Nursing classes and even got into the Nursing Program at UCM. But something changed at the beginning of my junior year and I could not deny not wanting to be a Nursing major any longer. As my classes advanced I realized that the passion I once had for Nursing was not there any more. I could not see myself being a proficient Nurse if I did not have a desire for the job. So after researching Social Work again, the option that I once ignored came back into my life.
This is very important to me because if I could have one thing in life it would be happiness. I also learned that it is a very active job. I couldn't stand being stuck in a cubicle all day, so it's nice to know that there is always something new when you're a nurse anesthetist. This year I want to further research nurse anesthetists, so that I know what courses in high school would prepare me for anesthesiology college classes.

I loved assisting with the birth of a child. My time spent in the Labor and Delivery unit was the most wonderful and rewarding experience. Before I left the Air Force, I started taking college courses working toward a bachelor’s degree in Nursing. My dream was to obtain a Master of Nursing degree in Midwifery. As a Certified Nurse Midwife I could care for pregnant women and help them bring their babies into this world.
My decision to major in nursing was finalized during my junior and senior year of high school when I was fortunate enough to get to volunteer at The Arbors Nursing Home. The opportunity to work with Alzheimer and dementia patients was an amazing experience that helped me to grow in my compassion and patience, and has assured me that I want to be a nurse. I am incredibly lucky to have been a part of their direct care and to have connected with the patients on a personal level. During my time at the Arbors, I learned how much more rewarding it can be to provide healthcare when you know and care about the patients that you are treating. The role of compassion in nursing is sometimes overlooked, but it is one of the main reasons that I chose this profession.
I enjoyed being with patients and making them feels happy with our company. Being with them each day always make my day; I always look forward to my attachment. When I graduate, I knew I wanted to upgrade myself and become a registered nurse but I couldn’t due to the requirement of GPA, so I decided to work and hope that I could get a sponsorship from the hospital. After working for 1yr 8 months in the hospital, my manager decided to send me for further
